Collingbourne & AV v Andover Cricket Club U14B (SADICA - Indoor) on Sun 15 Feb 2015 at 15:00
Andover Cricket Club Won by 104 runs.

Match report Andover are currently sitting a very respectable 2nd in the league, but to have any chance of taking the title at the end of the season, they needed to use this match to dramatically increase their "runs for" average.

So after winning the toss and electing to bat first, the manager set a target of putting the opposition wicket keeper and fielders under intense pressure and achieving 12 runs per over. And in a great all round performance that is exactly what the team did, scoring 124 from their 10 overs. Baines and Hesslegrave both got their highest batting totals to date scoring 23 (unbeaten) and 25 respectively, but the running from extras throughout the team was outstanding, and the opposition were unable to control or restrict the running.

In reply a Collingbourne team containing several new players struggled against some good wicket keeping and excellent accurate bowling: Hesslegrave picked up 2 wickets in his 2nd over, Cooke was really unlucky to go for 6 from the last ball of his over, and with Baines and newcomer Cady going for just 2 runs and Firth for 3 runs from their 2 overs the result of the match was quite conclusive with Andover winning by 104 runs. Even an overly generous blatant stumping decision that was given not out by one of the umpires (sorry Joe and Erik) didn't change the excellent result. Well done Andover.

The next and final match of the season will determine the 1st and 2nd places in the league so promises to be an exciting one, with Andover needing to both win and post a high runs total to be in with a chance of taking the top spot.
